Clients love when you pull a tarot card that symbolizes freedom, especially if they’ve been trying to break free from something they feel is holding them back. Some of the cards that can symbolize freedom include the Fool’s card, the Judgement card, the Devil card (reversed), the Page of Wands card, and the Eight of Swords card (reversed).
That being said, each of them is a little different in their precise meaning, so it’s good to take a look at each of them individually before you do a reading. Let’s take a look at each of these cards in more detail so that you can learn more about them.
The Fool’s Card
The Fool’s card symbolizes a free spirit, an uninhibited personality that causes a person to live in the present and never show fear. This is a confident person who grabs everything possible from life and does indeed cherish freedom. When the card is drawn upright, the client should ask themselves, is there anything holding them back from doing what they really want to do in life? Do they care so much about what others think that they don’t truly feel free? Does their life feel “claustrophobic”?
When the Fool’s card is drawn upside down, they need to ask themselves, do they pretend to be free for appearances but really don’t feel that way? Are they playing the fool to hide their intelligence because they don’t want to be taken advantage of? Any of these things could be reasons that cause them not to feel truly free in their life, and once they figure it out, they can easily do something about it.
The Judgement Card
The Judgement card can mean several things, including aspects that point straight to freedom and independence. In addition, this card is perfect for yes or no questions that a client may have. It indicates that the client may soon receive sudden and unexpected news, get some unique ideas, discover a new talent they didn’t know they had which offers them more freedom in their life, some good surprises that are on the way, or the happy ending to a scenario they’ve been curious about.
The Judgement card also points to a person who loves and exhibits a lot of freedom, including artists and people who are very creative. If they’re not experiencing a lack of freedom, they could be a musician, visual artist, writer, or some other creative type of person.
The Devil Card
When the Devil card is pulled in reverse (in other words, upside down), it is a sign that the client is ready to go to a higher plane. However, the catch is that they must be willing to detach themselves from whatever is holding them back from experiencing true freedom.
If they do not detach completely, they will be unable to reclaim their power and total freedom. It’s good to let the client know this as soon as you pull the card. They must know that to reclaim their freedom, they have to be willing to detach themselves from whatever was holding them back in the first place.
The Devil card usually symbolizes a very independent person who actually desires total freedom, even if that’s not what they’ve gotten out of life so far. Of course, it’s up to them to do the things that must be done so that the freedom is theirs to keep. This is essentially what all of these cards mean – that the client is just one step away from freedom and they have to figure out how to get past it.
The Page of Wands Card
The Page of Wands card can mean several things for your client. Under the category of Money and Career, it could mean that they enjoy having the freedom to do what they love and what they wish to do with their life. It could also mean that they are very close to discovering something that will lead them to a much more secure future – maybe a better-paying job or starting a new business is in the works? If they allow themselves, they will soon be able to experience all of this and probably much more.
When it comes to Love and Relationships, they may feel that they are ready to move up to something that will allow them more freedom, but their partner isn’t on board with that.
This might create a sense of conflict, but they’ll have to decide for themselves if they want to stay in the relationship or move on so that they can experience total freedom in the end.
The Eight of Swords Card
The Eight of Swords card demonstrates a feeling that is the opposite of freedom. When this card is drawn and it is reversed, it means the client is feeling very limited and feels stuck in a certain situation. They may feel like they’re rushing into a situation, or they’re already there, that takes away their freedom and their choices. In other words, they’re in a situation that makes them feel very limited and virtually powerless.
Other characteristics associated with this card include the lack of freedom to move, self-affirmation, and the need to determine a way out of a particular situation. These clients are involved in something, in other words, that is causing them to feel stuck and like they have no freedom, so they need to find a way to get out of it so they can experience their freedom once again.
Freedom is important, and when you draw any of these cards during a tarot reading, it says something specific to the client. If you want additional information on the cards, it isn’t difficult to find. Just keep in mind that some of these cards have different meanings depending on the direction they are drawn.
If you’re a beginner or intermediate reader, you’ll have to make sure you understand the differences so that you don’t tell the client something that’s incorrect. Fortunately, that isn’t a difficult thing to do once you get in a little practice time with your cards.
